Differentiation from natural navigating systems​

Lower acquisition costs: Savings compared to natural navigating systems

Higher process reliability: track guidance is more stable than free navigation; With natural navigation, changes in the environment can lead to a loss of orientation​
Higher throughputs: Fast and precise positioning enables fast handovers. Duration of a transfer (with conveyor) takes about 5 seconds. Natural navigating systems take 20-30 seconds. ​

Tried-and-tested standard superstructures: other manufacturers often offer only basic vehicles; special load handling devices only possible by integrators​

Differentiation from track-guided systems​

Wider range of applications: modular setup with different standard load handling devices​

Better freedom of movement: HERBIE can reverse and turn on the spot thanks to differential drive. Other manufacturers with turntable steering which has bigger curve radiuses cannot do this. ​
Software intelligence: HERBIE can implement any process that could be mapped via a rail network. Other systems can often only follow rigid routes.​
Higher payloads: Competitors are most often limited to 400×600 mm and 35 kg. HERBIE can hold up to 600×800 mm and 50 kg – HERBIE Trolley also up to 200 kg. Pallet AGVs currently under development.​
Safe person detection: Other manufacturers work with physical bumpers and not with secure scanner technology.​

Increased stability of navigation: Track guidance with integrated luminescence color; Sealing and painting of the lane possible; RFID tags as an alternative to barcodes possible​
Uninterrupted 24/7 operation: Inductive charging system and autonomous charging strategy enable uninterrupted operation; Other manufacturers only offer replaceable battery systems.​
